“Finest original extra virgin olive oil in the world”
ELEA® organic extra virgin olive oil is a widely-acclaimed, multiple award-winning olive oil, made with the highest quality control standards. Traditional hand-picked, raw unfiltered, organic extra virgin olive oil.
Grown in Krokees, south of Lakonia, Greece, the Koroneiki variety of olive oil is world renowed for its olive oil. Here at ELEA® the age-old tradition of cultivating and producing olive oil continues till today.
ELEA® extra virgin olive oil is produced using the Agoureleo harvesting method: the olives are hand picked when they are premature green in October and November two months before rippening. They are then stone-crushed followed by a cold extraction and placed into a tank in order for the olive oil to settle for 8-12 weeks.
This is considered amongst Europeans to be the highest quality extra virgin olive oil due to its low acidity and peroxide values and high antioxidant levels.
Golden green in colour, this organic estate bottled olive oil is fragrant and complex with an underlying sweetness with earthy, peppery notes.
The Koroneiki variety is well known for its terroir: the geography, geology and climate has wrought oil that is luscious and soft with a full round body with a hint of papaya and distinct floral notes.
The Koroneiki produces the highest quality extra virgin olive oil in the world, and it has the highest amount of anti-oxidants.
The Koroneiki is the best known olive oil in Greece. While the fruit is small, Koroneiki olives have exceptional quality. The climate and clean air is a paramount in producing this olive oil, the preferred olive oil among connoisseurs.
The region experiences a dry climate, the mountains in the south providing a barrier to rainclouds. This low water volume translates to low acidity and peroxide values in the olives. The soil is rocky and the olive groves extract their water from underground water reservoirs.
The family traditions that created the first olive oil back in the 1860’s are still in practice today. There is a story behind every harvest, every bottle of olive oil is lovingly created in time-honoured traditions in this part of Greece
